    Haha TL's doing it again my last build went belly up so I'm down grading and this is my final tank best if the best only....;) this is gonna be a cleAn kiss system no powerheads etc.... I got my mini dart for a closed loop that will provide all the necessary flow "hopefully" lighting still pending but most likely diy LEDs loving them on my current tank!!! Umm ordered all my Marco rocks and cement for the aquascape, stand will be steel with cherry wood skinned over the top of it... Ummm still a little planning but this is gonna be hottest tank yet!!!!:) my first cube!!!! Haha...

    You admitted that your last tank went belly up. I fear for you :)

    I can't wait for pics. Will this be glass or acrylic?

    Well the belly up statement refered to a build that didn't get completed lol.... I still have my current 220 just the Eco friendly 180 will not be made just to big and expensive.... Tired of being married to those big tanks I want a small cube that's set and forget...1smile1

    What happened to the drop down tank?
    This is going to be sweet!! Can you post a sketch of your plans so I can submit it to the Best aquarium of all time thread?

    Awesome, can't wait to see the progress.

    BTW: If you want to put together a 15x15x9 tank while you are at it I'll play the Mini-Lee role.

    Excited for you! Can wait to see it come together. And now you are a cubey! ;)

    Love it when things get exciting again. Can't wait to see the aquascape. Mainly cuz I will probably steal your ideas :bigsmile: Imitation is the best form of flattery.
